This year we had a mega event 'Skatelifegoa Open' at our hometown in Goa on 8th April 2023. The Skatelifegoa crew had planned this particular event way back in 2019, but unfortunately due to covid the plan could not be executed. Finally we got a window to pull this event off in style!
So SLG Open is a mix of culture, spot contests, communal gatherings, positive vibes etc etc In short it's one of a kind event which you don't want to miss out on :). It will be an annual event which will happen every year during the summer's in Goa hosted by the Skatelifegoa crew.
This years SLG open kicked off with a free beginner workshop at 3pm on 8th of April. Beginners of various age group participated in the same. Detys skate group from USA had come down for the event who got a lot of skateboards and decks to support the skatelifegoa community. So to make the beginners workshop more fun there was a contest: Anyone who drops in, from the beginner workshop students will get a free complete skateboard!. To our surprize we had 3-4 skaters who dropped in on their very first day. Samit Chauhan hailing from Uttar Pradesh was the first one to nail the drop in on his first day.
Later in the evening we had the last man standing contests for all age groups. Then there was a highest ollie and longest grind competition. Both contest were won by Andy Topo, our local homie from Goa. Then we had a raffle, the prize was a full complete skateboard!. The raffle was won by Chirag K. Then we had a rap performance by the 27main street crew hailing from Pune. Anddd! finally the contest which all were waiting for, Cash for tricks!. This years cash for tricks was conducted on the mini ramp built by Skateable spaces accompanied by fire session on the same :)
Day ended with an after party celebration at Cremuex Cafe and Bistro. It started with a cake cutting, cake was specially made for the Skatelifegoa crew by Cremeux. It was great to see the full crew hanging out together after a very long time. For all those who made it for this event will know how this event turned out :), one of the best skate events we have ever witnessed. For the rest who could not make it this year, SLG open 2024 will be back again next year. Follow Skatelifegoa on Instagram for more updates on the event.

A skateboarding video by Boardzup with Piso Skateboards: Watch it here - 'Untitled' (Boardzup X Piso Skateboards)"What decade are we in? We will still be anarchy, punks through their lens. "Filming in the streets of a city like Delhi was a hustle. The casual approach of reaching the spot and filming in our leisure time resulted in a verbal confrontation with the public and clashes with the guards and getting kicked off the spot. So the question became how do we get the filming done? It became a battle of girt and outsmarting them.
